Okay guys! Anyone who's tried Billy's tapes know how excited he gets during his workout..nothing has changed..so get over it!
When I completed my first workout, I was drenched with sweat. You will definitely feel the burn with this tape! My abs were sore for a week! I could not laugh without hurting!
But you know what they say.."NO PAIN...NO GAIN". If you want a tape that will really work your abs and butt..this is the tape.
If you suffer with lower back pain, I suggest placing a pillow behind your back for leverage.
It's going to take sometime to get used to the the video if you have a lot of gut to get rid of, but hang in there and you will see results. It's a hard video if you are just starting out.
This is a fast pace workout, but workout at your own fitness level. Don't give yourself a coronary trying to keep up.
I'm telling you guys, Billy's tape hit all the muscles, and hits them HARD!!! You will work muscles you never knew you had,and you will be sore!
If you want a killer ab and glute workout..this is "THE ONE".

this video is about 30mins long, it starts with about a 3-4 minute warm-up and then its an 8 minute abs workout, I will say that the pace goes very fast, and your heart rate will definitely go up a bit, you do crunches of all kinds, and do a few really good exercises for the lower abs, which is excellent because most of us have that problem area that won't go away!!
then proceeds to the buns....all I can say ouch! that goes for about 7-8mins also, for those exersises you get on all fours and lift up the legs to every direction, then lie down on your stomach and do some more buns and lower back exercises, then do some 5 or so minutes of abs, which focus more on lower abs....then a good cool down.
This is a good workout, I highly recommend it to people who are in the advanced level....but when I got it, I was a beginner/intermidiate, and now I can definitely feel harder abs and buns.
Just stick with it!

First of all, this video is a great length. At around a half hour, it gives you an amazing workout. He starts off with a fast-paced warmup (as usual), then moves into ab work, then some buns, and then a few extra abs before the cool-down. Most of the moves are ones I've seen in other videos, but he puts the best together to create a wonderful workout. It makes you nice and sore, and gives you energy to start the day. Billy is wonderfully motivational as usual, and I find myself working harder when hes watching me, and answering when he asks questions. This video is great, and I hope he comes out with more in the "focus" series soon! HIGHLY RECCOMENDED!

I love this routine. To me, the 30 minutes fly by, you are constantly moving. I've only had it for maybe 6 weeks, and some parts are a little hard yet for me (flexibility wise), but I can do it all to the finish.
And I can see that it's working! I've measured, I've looked in the mirror, my husband has commented. And the tape is pretty inexpensive. What more could you ask for!

What an incredible Abs/glutes workout! Billy Blanks makes sure he gives you a complete workout (by introducing moves besides the basic crunch) to hit every muscle group in your abdomen and gluteus. Billy's extremely personable, is always encouraging, and makes you feel like you have complete control over your workout. This Abs/Glutes workout would be considered by the average person as at an advanced level...so keep that in mind before purchasing. Although this workout is just 30 minutes in duration, it is one of the most intense workouts I have ever experienced, and I am an avid exerciser. It takes extreme control and willpower to complete this tape, but is worth it in the end. I have seen INCREDIBLE results in the month I have owned this tape...amazing definition in the abs, and VERY firm muscles in the gluteus. Billy is constantly reviewing the proper techniques to follow when performing the moves, which is excellent. I have nothing but respect for Billy Blanks and the time and energy he puts into making quality TaeBo videos that will get you the results you have always wanted. As Billy always says, "If you have the will, TaeBo's the way!"

I've had excellent results from the glute portion of this video. This is the 1st home workout that has really made a difference in my appearance. However, I didn't get as good as results with the abs as I did with the glutes. He moves a little too fast and I find it hard to get a full range of motion. I've combined this workout with Winsor Pilates and now seeing results in the ab area also.

This was my first Tae-bo tape and had had concerns, since I hardly ever enjoy fast-paced workouts and I usually hate to be shouted at through the TV screen. Now, even though it IS fast-paced and the instructor IS yelling at me like crazy, I still love it. :o)

Combining some of the old-time favorite abs and glutes exercises with new variations AND speed results in a short workout that proves to be real effective. I hardly ever find tapes that leave me feeling the burn afterwards; now, after doing this one for the first time, I could hardly move for two days! I'm not saying it is necessary for a workout to be effective nor is it necessarily good, but it will definitely keep me inspired, since I feel like "good, so I HAVE done some serious work".

Having said all that I would like to explain why I've still given this tape only 4 stars. There ARE a few reasons. First of all, they lose count several times, thus completing a few sets more times on one side than the other, sometimes even forgetting some. Also, don't expect very detailed cues, which might mean wrong moves that will either cause poorer results or actually even the opposite of what you're trying to achieve. My last concern is also connected to this: those of you that mainly want to lose some fat on the abs AND then tone them, might actually realize that their abs are GROWING instead of TONING - this workout is VERY tough on abs and even though you'll be sweating like crazy (at least I am :o)), you'd better include some serious cardio in your routine and follow a healthy diet, because this tape alone will not melt away the fat on the abs.
